The purpose of graduate medical education (GME) is to provide an organized educational program with guidance and supervision of the resident, facilitating the resident’s professional and personal development while ensuring safe and appropriate care for patients. Sponsoring institutions, therefore, must be appropriately organized for the conduct of GME in a scholarly environment and be committed to excellence in both education and medical care. This commitment is exhibited by the provision of leadership and resources to enable the institution to achieve substantial compliance with the Institutional Requirements and to enable the educational programs to achieve substantial compliance with Program Requirements. This includes providing an ethical and professional environment in which the educational curricular requirements, as well as the applicable requirements for scholarly activity, can be met. Regular assessment of the quality of the educational programs is an essential component of this commitment.
